  1. CHINESE FLOWER FAIRIES
    CHINESE FLOWER FAIRIES

    The stories of “Flower fairies” come from the Tang Dynasty (618-907). Rumor has it that the 12th of February in the Chinese calendar, is the birthday of all flowers and every year on this particular day, people worship the flower fairies with liquor, bouquets and hire troupes to perform the different stories that come with each individual flower fairy. In accordance with ancient tradition, people celebrate the flower fairies’ birthdays in order to wish for prosperity, wealth and good fortune. 

    Flower enthusiasts, lovers and literati of all dynasties wrote spectacular poems and moving legends for the various kinds of flowers, and hence created a flower fairy for all 12 months of the year. One of these poems explains that although flower fairies all have different personalities, they all share the common goal of protecting mother earth. According to the Chinese calendar, January is represented by Plum and Bamboo which symbolizes endurance and integrity; April is Peony and Orchid which symbolizes prosperity and elegance; June is the Lotus which signifies purity; November has Narcissus and Camellia which embodies an auspicious life and pureness, and so on.

  4. FLORAL FAN
    FLORAL FAN

    Chinese Fans are made in many different styles and form an excellent medium to illustrate the artistic spirit of Chinese design. Dating back to the Shang (1600-1046 BC) Dynasty, a fan made of pheasants' feathers was the first to be recorded in China. Round fans, made of silk, paper and feathers, were first seen in China and remained the main shape of fans until the Tang and Song dynasties.

    It was a symbol of social status and also of taste in fashion. Fans are used in decorative art: papers for fans are printed, mounted and framed like pictures. Many of the artists of the Song (960-1276 AD) and later dynasties were fond of painting miniature landscapes and floral studies on one surface while drawing fancy calligraphy on the other.  

    YEWN’s latest Floral Fan Collection is dedicated to this distinguished artistic creation. Framed in 18k black gold, brilliant cut diamonds and rose cut diamonds add to its shimmer.
